A Cambridgeshire-based aerial imaging specialist has expanded its business horizons with the launch of a new drone service division.
Ely Aviation’s new division will focus on aerial surveying, inspection and geospatial analysis.
The company’s operations director, Rachel Titchener, said: “We have been asked for our more specialist aerial imaging services on an increasing basis over the last six months.
“There really is not a typical project, from historic building inspection, land surveying and everything in between. This has meant that we have had to invest a significant amount of time and money on new equipment to ensure we can deliver accurate data to our clients.”
The company also works with television companies, and large corporates via its aerial videography division and runs a drone academy in association with 3iC delivering the training needed for new pilots to qualify and gain their CAA permissions.
The company, which is headed up by Ian Titchener, first opened its doors in January after it was granted its PfCO. Over the last seven months the company has launched a variety of new services, including training programmes, and provided aerial videography for a host of celebrities.
